Excellent. Only thing missing are photos of the clouds of tire smoke from the burn-out contest at the grandstand (no XRs in that event...but LOTS of entries and LOTS of smoke!).

Yep, you got the action up front and certer; but the view of the smoke that some of us had from up on XR Hill with the wind blowing the smoke away from the burn-out area was something else--it was as if that area was on fire, large clouds of smoke forming, frist streaky but building into think cumulus-like billows, occasionally punctuated by a tire blowing out, and the best part--all of that CONTINUING ON FOR 30, 45, 60, 75 SECONDS AND MORE!!!!

YMMV
